Braemar Cruise Review by Norfolk Women

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2019
  • Destination: Spain
  • Cabin Type: Twin Inside

We choose this cruise to celebrate our 40th wedding Anniversary and the special offer price was too attractive to turn down. We were let down by Guest Services in Suffolk regarding this but the staff on board more than made up it. Stephen and Gustie in the Thistle were great. The food was better than expected with lots of choice. Our Cabin stewardess Patti offered service above expected and James in the Observation Lounge remembered our cabin number after the second visit to the bar. Jeffery in guest services sorted out head offices issues! In my opinion the art works left a lot to be desired. The one in our cabin was awful. It would have been useful to know that all the museums but one were closed In Lisbon on a Monday and Cadiz was closed on Sunday (the days we visited).

The drinks package was good for adults but for anyone aged between 12-17 years it was a waste of money unless you were prepared to rot your child's teeth with at least 9 fizzy drinks a day. Yet you had to pay adult prices for the children if you had anyone of this age in your cabin. Very unfair Fred Olsen.

Cabin Review

Twin Inside
Cabin I 6019

The cabin was small, Most of our luggage stayed in the suit cases as there was not enough room to store it and we could not store the suitcases under the bed which made it hard for our maid Patti to work around them and do her job.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Closed on a Sunday if we had known that we would have booked a shore excursion.
